Coming Soon: New Latino Stories in Film!
The submissions are in! Our judges are now reviewing screenplays from Latino filmmakers around the country. Ten semi-finalists will be selected by July 11, and three finalists will be chosen by August 1. Our finalists will have their screenplays produced into a short film with mentorship from some of the most influential Latino voices in the industry. The films will debut on Spotlight Dorado later this year, and the winner will be decided by popular vote. Stay tuned!
